3 free ebooks and 1 free audio book - [edited: no longer free]

Heywood Gould is making 3 of his ebooks and 1 audiobook free for a limited time at http://heywoodgould.com/pages/?m=200812.
The three books are Fort Apache: The Bronx, Cocktail and Corporation Freak.
The audiobook is Leading Lady.
Some of these you may recall have had movies made from them.

@Xarroc: What does Harry Potter audiobooks have to do with the op's posting? Unless you misposted...

Anyways from Heywood Gould's site:

Dear Readers,

We have to remove our offer of free downloads for the rest of the month of January. We have exceeded the limit of downloads for our site for the month. We will have another offer in February. Until then, come to the blog for the latest news from the Daily Event.

That was in Dec. 2008.

Damn, I didn't know this guy wrote Cocktail! It was one of the first movies I saw. Now I want to get hold of the freebies more than ever.

Yeah, he mis-posted alright -- he mistook MobileRead for a forum that welcomed spam.

I read Fort Apache: The Bronx when I was a kid and loved it, also the movie with Paul Newman is pretty decent too Great to see him giving them away free.

They are no longer free. Seems the non-Kindle versions are PDF and the Kindle versions are more expensive. Cocktail is $4.99 and for the Kindle version from Amazon is $7.99.

This is just another eBook mess.
